This morning my 2yo son almost kicked me in the face for suggesting I remove his soaked overnight diaper.

I had half a mind to send him to daycare in it 😛

Oh man, I’m feeling this today. My little guy (9 months) is teething. He had a fever yesterday and last night and simply would not allow me to put him down. Not even for bed. I don’t believe in co-sleeping, but I even tried to lay down on the carpet with him and slowly slide my arm out from under so I could just sleep next to him … not allowed. He insisted on being held in a specific way or drama ensued. So I just held him and watched all of the Santa Clarita Diet while he slept on me. I woke up his dad to trade at 4am, and he went to work late so that I could sleep until 8. Send all the coffee!

llevinso :  hahaha angry baby burrito! I have a photo like that of my son at four months. He’s in a big soft chair, screaming his head off, and looks like an angry little boss man giving someone a dressing-down. In hindsight, glad I took the photo before picking him up – it’s the only time I got him making that face on camera.

And night wakings are the worst! This week my two year old has decided to wake up at night to get a drink, and a snuggle. Just the drink won’t do. And then she’s somehow up with the sun the next morning, as if she didn’t spend an hour in the middle of the night tossing and turning and snuggling up to me. I’ve been sick and this is really not helping me get better. I’ve been tempted to run off and crash on a friend’s couch for a few days… she always behaves like an angel when I’m not around!

One thing with the wake ups–if it keeps going on for a few nights you might want to take him in and see if he has an ear infection. My LO was acting like that starting on a Friday night and I got him into the doctor on Tuesdya. When I brought him in it turned out he had a double ear infection. He didn’t have any other symptoms (no fever, no tugging on the ears, etc) but he was very sensitive to what position he was placed in (I’m guessing it had to do with fluid in his ears)

fourfrenchfries :    I feel for you, my 7 month old got his first teeth last week and he went from an easy going happy guy to clingy and not letting us out of his sight! I had to drag the high chair into the bathroom and feed him teething crackers while I showered and had to randomly poke my head out for peekaboo in order to get a shower! 

Teeth are hard!!

LO is (I think) going through his 6-week growth spurt right now. He was born 10 days early and is only about 5.5 weeks old right now, but I’m hoping it’s the 6-week spurt since I’ve heard it’s one of the worst and things somewhat look up once it’s over.

He’s been eating every hour and a half or so and barely sleeping. Fuss fuss fussing all day err day. He’s been like this for the past several days already so I’m just hoping it ends soon. He’s officially over 11 pounds now, so it better. I only hope he’s gotten significantly longer too to balance out all that chunk!

I haven’t given birth yet but my kid went all Xenomorph in front of our house full of CFBC/CFFN friends the other night.  I was leaned back on the couch and all of a sudden a tiny foot shot out of my stomach and horrified everyone, even our friend who has been TTC for years.

llevinso :  I’d recommend taking him to the doctor – sounds like he probably has an ear infection. My 3.5 month did the exact same thing 2 weeks ago and it turns out he had an ear infection. No other signs – no fever, ear tugging, leaking fluids. He just did NOT like being horizontal.  He’s typically a champion sleeper (6-9 hours straight). Then one Friday night, he wouldn’t sleep at all. Every time we tried to put him down he cried and screamed. Resting upright on our shoulder – totally fine, falls right asleep. Try to put him down. Nope nope nope! That would not do. Finally, at 2am we googled it and realized he might have an ear infection. We gave him some Tylenol, put him in his swing, and he FINALLY fell asleep and slept for like 7 hours. We took him to the doctor the next morning, and yep! He had an ear infection. Got him some antibiotics and he’s a happy camper again. 

It was definitely not a fun experience and I hope you’re little guy is ok! Good luck!

llevinso :  I literally died at the part where you said he was fully swaddled and upright like a little baby demon hahahaha so funny.

I don’t have children but I used to care for my mom’s friends baby when he was very little- he was at this nightmare stage. 

I would literally have to hold him and walk back and forth in the dark until he fell asleep, then slowly drop him into his crib and sneak out with the door open. 

Wait 2-10 minutes. 

SCREAMING. 

He would be upright in the crib like ‘WHAT WHY DID YOU LEAVE ME GET BACK HERE SERVANT’. 

Repeat walking around room and putting him to bed. 

Looking back, it is hilarious. These little guys take complete control of us and we’ll do anything to get them to sleep LMAO

Good luck.

llevinso :  Yea, my little guy wasn’t consistently upset with being laid down when he had his ear infection…it was just when we’d put him in his crib laying flat…and I’d pat his back until he started to drift off. Then I’d leave like normal, and a few minutes later he’d be wailing. I’d get him to sleep for maybe 2 hours at a stretch, but he’d wake up and just cry. The only way to console him was to let him fall asleep on me. Literally no other symptoms, and everyone thought I was crazy because I had a feeling he had an ear infection, and everyone I talked to insisted he had to have more symptoms or be fussier and that it was definitely teething….but then a couple days later the doctor confirmed it. The antibiotic turned him around so quickly that he only woke up once during the night after we started them.
